I Turned Bernie's And Hillary's Most Used Phrases Into Beautiful Poems

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have been talking quite a lot over the past 10 months.

The smarties over at FiveThirtyEight put together a list of the phrases the candidates used the most in the Democratic debates.

Some of those phrases are super vague, like Hillary's top phrase, “to go after.”

Some are a little more specific, like Bernie's eighth most-used phrase, “the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.”

But when life gives you a bunch of absurd, context-less political phrases, you have to make lemonade. So, here are some poems I made completely out of Bernie's and Hillary's most used phrases, with lines alternating between the two candidates.

“Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good State”

Let me just say this
I took on the
State of Vermont

And there
A political revolution
Spent a lot of time


“The Mountain Not Climbed”

We have to go
To the top
To do everything I can

I think that is
What we need to do
To figure out how

But at the end of the day
Barriers that stand in the way
All over this country

I think it's important
In the history of the
Comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship


“Because I Could Not Stop for Fossil Fuels”

I think we have got to
Build on
Income and wealth

And we need to
Transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficient and sustainable energy
To do more

Millions of people
Want us to
Not just a handful


“I Hear American Politicians Singing”

I want to make sure
As I understand it
That Senator Sanders
Make public colleges and universities tuition-free

Secretary Clinton is
How we're going to
Agree with much of what the secretary and the governor have said
On the Affordable Care Act
